With assays on Cardiotype tissues, we can measure multiple parameters to provide an integrated picture of how a new medicine can affect the human heart. Current tests based on cell culture and animal models do not accurately represent responses seen in human patients.
Cardiotype tissues are not limited to representing healthy cardiac function. We can mature tissues on our platform to act as disease models or representations of the biology of individual patients.
We can generate tissues representing healthy cardiac function. We can use commercial cell lines, like CD's iCell Cardiomyocytes², or your own proprietary lines.
Environmentally induced disease models
We can develop disease models utilizing compounds or experimental conditions known to induce disease states.
Genetically induced disease models
We can develop disease models utilizing mutations known to induce disease states.
Patient-derived disease models
We can develop disease models from patients with unknown cardiovascular etiology.
